Episode 107 - In June of 1993, 9-year-old Cindy Young found her mother, Brenda, deceased on the floor of their St. John’s, Newfoundland apartment. Brenda Marie Young, 26, and a mother of two was brutally murdered while her children slept. Almost immediately, police had focused on a suspect, Brenda’s boyfriend, 28-year-old Randy Druken. But, in this case, things are not always as simple as they first appear.
